The series has made the likes of Tommy Angelo, Vito Scaletta, Don Morello, and others famous, with their gang-related activity which spanned over three previous games.
These included Mafia 1, Mafia 2, Mafia 3, and the definitive editions, which rolled out some years after they were first stacked on shelves.
Well now, fans can expect another entry.
In a game developer blog post, Hangar 13’s Roman Hladík confirmed the next Mafia game is in the works.
They said: “I’m happy to confirm we’ve started work on an all-new Mafia project! While it’s a few years away and we can’t share anything more right now, we’re really excited to keep working on this beloved franchise and to entertain our players with new stories.”
No information has been revealed about which characters are set to return, or when the next installment will be set on the game’s timeline. Until then, the rumor mill will keep on turning.
